I have noticed that every few days I have to readjust the clock in the task bar, not sure but does that mean the cmos battery needs to be changed?

Yes, that is almost always the case....change the CMOS battery.

 

Some info on changing time servers, etc. in Vista if your clock is only off by a minute or two each day.

Replace the CMOS battery.

 

After replacing the battery reset the time and date.

Did you observe the proper polarity of the battery?

 

The positive ( + ) terminal should be facing up.

Yes I did, I also tried putting the the original battery back in and got the same thing so I put the new one back and went into the bios and reset it to default settings and reset the time, it took a while but it booted up and is running now, I didn't shut it down last night, I just logged off as I am not sure if it will boot up normaly. 

Like I said, it is running fine right now.
